crew remains in charge for the next two years. larry cohen, welcome. >> great being with you. >> if the democrats were back in the minority, would you be making this fight to reform the filibuster that you're making now? >> absolutely. because we believe that what a democracy means is that the american people are entitled to get discussion, debate and eventually a vote on the critical questions of the day. we haven't had that in decades in the u.s. senate. everything dies there. it doesn't get discussed and debated there as people used to believe. we need to bring back the debate in the u.s. senate. >> but if the republicans became the majority again, they might deny you the very thing you want. >> that means democrats who are in the minority would have to stand up, talk and fight back. >> talk. talk. >> really radical ideas. talk, talk, talk, yes. >> that's eliminated right now in the senate. >> there is no discussion of these issues unless you have 60 votes of the proposition. >> because it takes 60 members of the senate to vote to continue the discussion. >> it takes 60 ju
sweeping proposals from people like mr. cohen. what's he -- what's up? >> well, i think part of what's up is he's got four or five mocrats, many of them senior, in his own party who don't want to see this. and they're in fact at this moment trying to make their own deal with people like john mccain for next to nothing from our point of view. you wouldn't see any of those four changes that we're pushing for. and i think he is reluctant unfortunately, to go ahead with the overwhelming majority of democrats that he has. he's got 51 democrats -- >> already? >> -- who will support senate resolution 4. and we need the american people to call in to senator reid and say,let's take a stand. let's bring democracy to the u.s. senate." >> the polls suggest that the majority of americans really want filibuster reform and want the talking filibuster back. >> right, overwhelming majority, you know, two thirds at least and in fact on the other side, like 7%, 8%, 9% say "oh, yeah, they should be able to phone in from their fundraiser," which is what they do, and say, "i object." and then you're in unanimo

senator william cohen he appointed to his defense secretary. and president george bush did the same thing, he pointed one democrat, norman mineta was chosen by george w. bush to serve as transportation secretary. in george w. bush's second term, norm mineta stuck around. he did not leave until close to the end. so president bush never appointed another democrat, but he did have that one democrat, norman mineta during that term in his cabinet. barack obama at this point has doubled the record of cabinet bipartisanship of his predecessors, and more than that. you'll recall that he picked bob gates to stay on as secretary of defense. so republican at defense. president obama also picked ray lahood for the norm mineta honorary bipartisanship chair over at the department of transportation. transportation was held by a democrat under bush. it has been held by a republican the whole time under obama. but beyond that, beyond defense and transportation, president obama also had another attempt at bringing another republican into his cabinet. you remember when he offered judd gregg the job of comme
house is looking at those kinds of things, labor law. larry cohen was talking about some of this earlier, the ed show. i am hopeful the white house sees a path to move the country forward. >> do you think immigration and gun reform, which the president has put forward as it first. for the first term that they can move in the senate? >> i think immigration can move in the senate. a number of things we can get in the senate because we have a way of getting over the 60 votes or speeding up the process. the house still doesn't move on it, so perhaps immigration gets through this. if it doesn't get through the house, the president will use executive powers that he has. it isn't ever as good invoking the executive powers, executive orders and other things. it will be pretty hard. there will be a lot of public pressure, as the president pushes us. i think they will use the next four years, use the bully pulpit. the republicans are going to say he is out campaigning. i think he is pushing his agenda. he needs to go over the heads of republicans to do it. i am pretty optimistic this will be a pre
with his family and all of a sudden became very ill. senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen spoke to his parents about their son's final days. >> the family was getting ready for a joyful christmas when on december 31st, 17-year-old son max started feeling sick. tired, fever. >> he never really got like super sick. >> two days later he was feeling better. played in the snow on vacation in wisconsin. celebrated christmas with his family. but christmas night, max felt sick again. >> excessive like 104.9 fever. we could not break it. >> the next morning, his parents took max to the hospital. where he was diagnosed with the flu. >> within 30 minutes, i mean the doctor was like something really wrong here. his kidneys are starting to fail. >> max was rushed by helicopter to a larger hospital. >> one of the last coherent things he said he looked at me and there were tears rolling down his face. >> he was scared >> he said, mom, i'm scared. >> i said i know, buddy. i am, too. then he saw me crying. he said mom, it's going to be okay. you're going to be okay. i love you. and that's really
autism lost their symptoms as they grew older. senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen here to talk to me about this study. first, just explain the study. >> it is fascinating because it turns conventional wisdom on its head. doctors thought you can't outgrow autism once you're diagnosed, that's it. you have it. these researchers found 34 kids who were diagnosed with autism by good doctors who know what they're doing as very young kids before the age of 5, and then they -- years later when they looked at them, they didn't have any signs of autism. they were examined and the signs were gone. >> so how is this even possible? >> a couple of things going on. they found in some ways this group of kid had somewhat milder autism to begin with, that's one thing. it could also have something to do with the early intervention that these kids got, some of the training and the schooling and what have you, the therapy these kids got. and it also might have something to do with the children's individual brains. maybe there was something about their brains. and researchers have told me, you know,
the top of this morning by mr. cohen -- the op ed by mr. cohen. we will discuss the accuracy, historical and artistically inside, but does a masterful job in suggesting in the real world there are no right angles and no easy answers to very difficult situations. that, to me, was a great service. >> i also liked the movie. it was very entertaining, but it is a movie, and there were some things i really liked and things i did not like. i did not like, for example, the portrayal of the enhanced interrogation techniques. i did not like the fact that it made a false link between torture and intelligence successes. i also think torture does not work, and our programs work because it was not tortured. there were other things i liked about the movie. i liked the fact that it conveyed that this was a 10-year marathon parian rather than a sprint -- rather than a sprint by a president, and the agency was the focus of this effort and succeeded because of the commitment, dedication, and tenacity of its people. i like the fact that it showed the enhanced interrogation program had something to do with
by the communication workers of america. the cwa. good men and women of the cwa under president larry cohen. the union for the information age. you bet. find out more about their good work at cwa-union.org. it is a friday morning. we're sort of tag teaming our way through the week here. because of my voice problem. peter ogborn, dan henning phil backert, cyprian bowlding and me, bill press. >> look at it this way. you are the rgiii of the team and i'm the kurt cousins. >> bill: my voice is about as strong as rgiii's right knee. at any rate -- >> it is a little bit better than that. >> bill: keeping us up to date here, those of us who live in our nation's capital on -- you know interesting stories let's say of the time where they happen to be taking place. local news editor and washington express columnist, clinton yates writes something called the root d.c. joining us on our news line this morning. good to you have on board. thanks. >> how is it going bill? how are you? >> bill: not too bad. >> if bill is the rgiii and i'm kurt cousins we'll call clinton the rex grossman. >> they give you that kind of
in our senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen. hopeful for the future. so rare that he has been able to go through successfully this surgery. what does it entail? >> it entails a very long surgery, where doctors have to tediously reconnect muscles, tendons, nerves, blood vessels. i was talking to a doctor, not at hopkins, but somewhere else, who has done a similar one, done the same thing. he said what really made him sweat was the blood vessels. if you don't do it just right, that limb isn't going to get any blood and it will just die. and so that's why these hopkins doctors, they train on cadavers for the past couple of months. they worked on cadavers to practice before they did the real thing. so it is just amazing that this can work at all. and he mentioned that in the one arm, which has -- they transplanted more, he had, that's not his real elbow on that arm, he doesn't have much motion and hopefully after lots of physical therapy that will happen. >> what i love about the story is his spirit and his hope. and i want our viewers to take a listen to what he said what he's mo
were talking about a little earlier this week. i want to get right to elizabeth cohen, our medical correspondent. what exactly is deer antler spray? why would that be beneficial to someone and why is that doping? >> right. the people who make this stuff say that it comes from what they call the velvet of deer antlers. they scrape this so-called velvet off and they say that the velvet contains igf1. and igf1 is the real deal. they give it to children who have medical conditions ajd are very short to help them grow. and the makers of these sprays, and there's a lot of them out there. the makers of these sprays say that it enhances muscle growth. they say that it can make you stronger. however, the experts that we talked to said the potential dangers are that it can also increase the chances of having muscle pain and even getting diabetes and heart disease. >> is there some indication that deer antlers grow so fast or there's some quick regeneration? why would you use deer antlers versus something else? >> right, that's a great question. that's the reasoning that these products give.
. is this what america wants? joining us for debate is stephan haste and sally cohen. he had also use big words. sit along by him on "special report." do you think that president obama is trying to undo reagan's legacy? we heard him talk so much about reagan when he was running for president, how much he looked up to him what did had on his mind something like where president reagan. president obama could make liberalism safe for america. could spread the gospel progressive values just as president reagan did with conservatism. i think it's working. to the extent that he is committed to doing it i think it's working. we remain a center right country. >> charles, do you agree with charles krauthammer and stephan hayes? this seems to be the moofl president obama is making or was it there all along. >> i'm confused as to which ronald reagan we are talking about. ronald reagan was the guy who gave amnesty to millions of undocumented immigrants. raise taxes 11 times. and supported the brady gun violence bill. so there is is that ronald reagan. then there is the ronald reagan sort of fictional ronald
because -- >> that's right. >> you and google idea director jerry cohen are publishing a book called "the new digital age." can you give us an idea or preview onhat the book is going to cover? i presume some of the things you have been talking about. >> we sat down over the last 18 months, traveled around the world and talked to people about where they thought technology was going and more importantly, how society would adapt to it, and we came to the end of the book with a very optimistic view of this. a simple way of thinking about it, let's go back to the economist. it covers dictators, economic problems, corruption, technological innovation, health care issues and general sort of things. >> and google occasionally. >> last week. >> yes, we were on the cover and covered us as well. so let's go through each of those. how to you solve the back dictator problem? you empower the simpsons. unless the dictator is willing to some out down the internet and shoot everybody can they're getting desperate enough to do, it puts a real check and balance, even china which is certainly not an elected
